The 24th annual meeting of the Midwest Graduate Music Consortium will take
place March 6-7 at the University of Iowa in Iowa City, Iowa. This
conference will showcase original graduate scholarship and performances,
and seeks to interrogate “Music(s) at the Margins” of graduate study. While
a variety of scores and paper topics are encouraged, we especially welcome
submissions addressing the ways in which prevailing musical, cultural,
methodological, and disciplinary tendencies engage with (or produce)
margins in the study of music and musical experience. This year’s
conference will feature a keynote address delivered by Dr. Naomi André of
the University of Michigan.

MGMC is a joint venture organized by graduate students from the University
of Chicago, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Northwestern University,
and, recently, the University of Iowa that promotes the presentation of
original research and the composition of new music by graduate and advanced
undergraduate students. The Midwest Graduate Music Consortium invites paper
and performance submissions for its upcoming conference. We welcome
proposals pertaining broadly to topics falling under the disciplinary
classifications of music studies (ethno/musicology, music theory,
performance, and pedagogy) and sound studies, as well as related inter- and
transdisciplinary topics.

Call for Submissions:
All submissions should exclude presenter name and institutional
affiliation. This information, in addition to the submission title, should
be included in the email. Paper submissions should not exceed 300 words
and, if necessary, may include a single supplemental page of musical
examples, figures, tables, etc. Selected presentations will be no longer
that twenty minutes. Score submissions may include, but are not limited to,
musical scores, sound art, performance art, video, dance, and plastic arts,
